Just let the porno-Ulysses get a rating of 18+ in the app store and tha's it. Who's 18? Maybe anyone who has a creditcard.
You are missing the point here. The Ulysses comic in question went to court and was actually found not to be pornographic by nature.
But obviously the iTunes Store rating engine found this not to be up to its high moral standards.
I am following your reasoning here, and to a point I agree. I think there's far too much sexuality commercialised and especially for the consumption of the youngsters. Take for example Bratz dolls etc. I do not allow my 7 year old daughter to play with them and I tried to explain to her why it's not appropriate.
But would I ban selling them? I don't think so. This is what totalitarian regimes do and nothing good comes out of it.
Knee jerk reactions are never a good way of dealing with problems.
